Paul Schwartz (born 1956) is a music producer, composer, arranger, conductor and pianist.[1] His music can be classified as a mixture of chill-out and neo-classical. Basic elements are vocals, piano, violins, and electronic samples. He collaborated with vocalists Lisbeth Scott and Rebecca Luker, performing in many songs throughout his albums.

Schwartz is the son of composer/producer Arthur Schwartz and actress/dancer Mary Schwartz,[2] and he is the half-brother of radio personality/sometime musician Jonathan Schwartz.

Paul studied at the Royal College of Music in London as a classical composer and was conductor of Broadway shows (such as The Phantom of the Opera).[3] He has worked with André Previn, composed and recorded with Carlos Santana and David Foster, and written for Josh Groban.[4]
